In my opinion it doesn’t get much more diverse than Malaysia. Yes this Southeast Asian country really is the king of multiculturalism in just about every single way.

Chiang Rai to Luang Prabang : How to Travel by Boat & Bus

One of the most fun border crossings I’ve made in Southeast Asia was from the northern Thai city of Chiang Rai to Luang Prabang in Laos, mainly because 2 days of the journey were made on a boat down the Mekong River! I mean sailing on the Mekong River to arrive at your destination does […]

The beautiful, charming city of Malacca was, without question, one of my favourite spots throughout my 3 week trip in Malaysia.
